On your first visit your physiotherapist will log details of aspects of your personal and medical history which are relevant to either physiotherapy treatment, or to acupuncture, including any drugs and current medical treatment. This is to ensure that any treatment you receive will be relevant, effective and safe in the context of your medical history
You will also be asked detailed questions about your current physical symptoms, including a physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis of the source of your pain.
This record taking and diagnosis will typically take 10-15 min leaving the last 15-20 min for either physiotherapy or acupuncture treatment.
Advice on self-help/self-treatment will be given during the session
